MAC Pro Sculpting Creams

15 comments
Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a nice weekend!

For those of you who read my MAC and Boots Haul, you will know that I purchased a couple of the MAC Pro Sculpting Creams.
1. Accentuate
2. Copper Beech
3. Coffee Walnut

 These creams are part of their Face and Body collection.

I was really excited about these creams, and I didn't even realise they are limited edition!

What I found great about the MAC Pro Sculpting Creams is that they are different to any other product MAC do. A lot of the time with the new collections they bring out, it's just different colours of product they already do (for example a limited edition lipstick).

I ended up buying 3 of these. The MAC artist at my local MAC counter tried the colour Copper Beech on me and I loved the way it looked. Sadly it was sold out at the counter so I ended up getting it online. 

I also bought Naturally Defined online as I thought it would make a nice highlight colour. When I received it though it looked too dark for a highlight. I took it back to my MAC counter and they let me swap it for Accentuate. I thought it was really nice that they let me exchange the product even though I had bought it online. I also picked up Coffee Walnut while I was there.

Here are the colours swatched on my arm:
 As you can see the colours are highly pigmented, but they blend out really well. 
 
I apply these using my MAC 215 brush and blend it out with my Real Techniques contour brush.

Both Copper Beech and Coffee Walnut make amazing contour colours that really bring out your cheekbones. Accentuate is a really nice highlight colour.

These products are a cream to powder formula. The colours are quite sheer but you can build them up to make them more intense. 

They do last quite well throughout the the day but I wouldn't say they are a long-wearing product, which is perhaps their only down side.

I did tweet about the fact that I think MAC should make these permanent, and they replied saying my comment would be passed on. 
The MAC Pro Sculpting Creams are a really unique product and I love that they make my cheekbones look a lot more defined.

The only colour that is sold out online is Coffee Walnut, but all other colours are still available.

Have any of you tried these? What are your favourite products for contouring and highlighting?

  1. I've seen some amazing before & after's using these. I'm really pale though so I don't think these would be right for me, I'm thinking of getting Illamasqua hollow though as that's meant to be good for pale skin tones x

    1. Ohh I've not heard of the Illamasqua ones I'll have to check them out! Accentuate might be quite nice out of the MAC ones if you're really pale. xxx

  3. What are the darker colors used for? Just wondering o.o They seem so opaque, i would be afraid to use them.

    I haven't tried these... I actually can't have creams or pigments on my skin at all. @___@ sensitive skin. Eyeshadow is the only thing I can use.
    Glad you like them though :D

    1. Awww that's a shame that you cant have pigments or creams. Have you tried Dermalogica they do make up n heard good things about it. The darker colours are for contouring. They look scarier than they are :) xx

  8. Hi Nuala,

    Great post! I've never really tried these MAC items before so this is a great insight. I think it's great that you contacted MAC directly. I wonder whether would bring out more shades of this in future?

    Take care,
    LiLi Xx
